This is a bit of a hike from Kuching. But it is really cool! Not sure I'd want to do it if there were crowds. There are a couple dicey ladders and stairs. Do bring a flashlight or at least an app on your phone. Certain areas are quite dark. We counted about 200 stairs to the entrance of the... More

This is a big and airy cave. Plant life grows where ever it can find a few rays of light. There is a tower to climb to get to the entrance and the pathways are mostly stairs. There are a couple of darker ares, so a flashlight or headlamp would be good. There is a nice breeze in the cave,... More

We visited the Fairy Caves with Kuching Off Road/Kuching Caving. The caves are fascinating but unfortunately with little obvious management or maintenance evident, they are falling into disrepair. This is such a shame as they are a wonderful cave system to explore. A fascinating insight into the cave system of Sarawak.

Very nice cave. The cave is very big and very nice. It's many steps though. If you like caves, should like this one. Remember to bring torch light.

We probably didn't explore enough of the caves to see the highlights. Our guide dropped us off at the foot of the stairs and told us to come down when we'd had enough. Fortunately he offered us the use of his torch as there are segments that you climb that are not lit and yet steep and slippery. We eagerly... More

We enjoyed our visit here! The fairy cave and the wind caves are only a few minutes drive from each other. So if you have the time while staying in kuching, it makes a nice day out. There is a bit of stair climbing to begin with, in an outside 'tower' before entering and climbing a darkened steep staircase. After... More

Simply one of the most mystical experience that I experienced. It looked like the dwelling place for the Chinese legend immortals. But I personally believe in angels thus the song 'Garden of God' from Chrono Cross kept playing in my head when i entered the caves. Love the sunlight penetrating the cave and creating a greenish aura with the green... More

Didn't know what is the hype of this caves all about. But it was a nice stroll in the cave. Do bring a torchlight or have some source of light as the entrance to the cave is dark.

Fairy Caves is one of the must-see in Kuching. Good place for exercise as there are some climbing involved. There is 15 flights of stairs of 10 steps with a final flight of 34 steps (total 184 steps) before you enter the cave mouth. Be careful inside the cave as it is wet and slippery. But the sights in the... More

this was my first time in a cave like this and it was just ok for me. Maybe I was expecting to see bats or even Batman here. LOL! Though I could here plenty of bats, they just were't moving around. The steps at the beginning of the dark cave entrance is pretty steep, it is recommended to use a... More
